I am so thankful for all the comments and well wishes you have given me over the past six months. Many of those comments have lifted my spirits during the long kitchen renovation process. Your belief in me has truly allowed me to take on projects I would have probably shied away from.

After 6.5 months, we finally unpacked our boxes and officially moved back into the kitchen. The plumber hooked up our sink and dishwasher on Tuesday. It was a milestone for us. My boys (young and adult) acted as if the kitchen sink was a thing of wonder.


As a thank you for helping me through the process of building our kitchen back after the leak, I’m giving you a little sneak peek of the progress. It’s not complete, but I feel like I owe you this little video preview:

Just getting caught up on our kitchen renovation? You can read ALL about how we went from a small water leak to bare studs to a working kitchen!

    Brittany, it’s looking AMAZING! That sink… UGH! Also, isn’t it crazy how much under-cabinet lighting adds to a kitchen? Makes it feel so much more ‘gourmet’ and classy. Love following along on your kitchen adventures and can’t wait to see the finished reveal!

    I think I’m in love with your kitchen. It is BEAUTIFUL! It inspires me to think about what I want to do when I get ready to remodel mine. I think my favorite thing is the mismatched hardware. So pretty!!!

    I am so relieved that you have a working kitchen. You have really been through the ‘ringer’ lately. I admire the way you have handled everything that has been handed to you. Your kitchen is lovely. You have many years ahead of you to enjoy it with your boys.

      At times it was trying, but I just kept myself busy. And sometimes I’m amazed that 6.5 months have passed. And sometimes when I think about October 2012, it seems years ago!

    I love your new sink! I’m curious about the dish of little hand towels. How do you use them? It looks like a clever way to avoid using too many paper towels.

      I just picked up the dish and washcloths at HomeGoods. And yes, it has replaced our paper towel addiction. So far I’ve been using them for several days and I’m liking it.

    Brittany – I cannot wait to see your reveal, and I am elated for you that you finally have the heart of your home back. I cannot imagine how you have survived all of these months but survive you did, and look what a beautiful kitchen you have to show for all of your hard work and efforts. I know you must feel very proud.
